Douglas Ruml, CFM, MA, DBA (Finance)

Professor Ruml did his undergraduate studies at Ohio State, Hebrew and Ambassador Universities. His Masters degree was completed at the California State University. He completed his Doctorate in Business Administration (Finance) at Northcentral University. Professor Ruml completed the Certified Financial Manager program at the Donald Regan School in Princeton, as well as achieving securities licenses in General Securities and Options (Series 7), Managed Futures and Commodities (Series 31), State Agent (Series 63), and Federal Investment Advisor (Series 65). He is a registered Property, Casualty, Life, Accident & Health, Variable Life, and Variable Annuity agent.

Professor Ruml began his career as a Reinsurance Broker in New York. Here he annually produced sales in the seven-figures, as well as creating spreadsheet programs for complex financial modeling, and the original catastrophe models used by the world's largest reinsurance intermediary. In the late 1990's he was a co-founder of a public software corporation in Great Britain, and in the 2000's was an equity partner at a Columbus, Ohio area insurance firm, where he handled marketing and the quality assurance program. 

As a global executive (and sometimes expatriate), Professor Ruml has lived in or extensively visited countries in North America, Europe, the Middle East, East Asia, and the South Pacific. He speaks English, German, French, Bislama, Pijin and Tok Pisin (most of them badly). An immigrant to the United States, he comes from a bi-racial, tri-lingual family: his wife is also an immigrant and his children's maternal language is French. He is co-author of the book World Religions in Brief which reflects his interest in human cultures, and the tremendous effect religion has had on the various civilizations of humanity right up until the present day. He currently serves as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Business at Ohio Dominican University, teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses in Finance, International Business, Marketing, and Corporate Information Strategy & Management.
